Debugging customized function module when Idoc is triggered via ALE

Hi,

Whenever we save the billing document, an outbound idoc is triggered via ALE. The logic for the data to be included in the idoc is written in a customized function module.

However we are making some changes and would like to include some more data in the idoc. But we find that when we put a breakpoint in the function module, on saving the billing document, the flow does not stop at the break point. We are 100% sure that the code in the function module gets executed based on the data in the idoc.

How do we get into debug mode and break the flow in the function module so that we can debug in the function module?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Mick

    Ok... follow these steps to enter into debug mode...

    1. Set break-point in function module.

    2. Before saving i.e. before clicking on Save button enter /H in command line and press enter.

    3. then click on save button.

    4. then you'll enter in debug mode (NOT into your funtion module)

    5.Then in menu select

    settings----> Update debugging

    you can see message 'Update debugging switched on'

    6. then press F8.

    7. this time control will stop at break-point in your FM.

    Basically update debugging is to call background programs like print programs while generating PO output etc.

    In normal debug mode you can't debug background processing.

    in such cases you've to follow above procedure.
